Kazuo Maekawa is a veteran mangaka known for taking up some peculiar projects, like his manga adaptation of the video game Ace Attorney. But amongst all the NFT and crypto craze, B & B Bad Sisters might just be the first of its kind.
The NFT marketplace has somehow exploded this past year. The technology was being used to sell all kinds of things, artworks, game assets, and even memes! Although the Japanese can be a little late to adopt new technologies, Maekawa seems to be ahead of everyone this time.
Mangaka Kazuo Maekawa and writer Tony Vega have released an original multimedia NFT project B & B Bad Sisters.
The project will debut on 6th August 2021, with the first set of NFT artwork consisting of 27 pieces. They will be going live on the OpenSea marketplace.
The visual introduces us to the protagonists of the story, Moh and Kumako Homma, who have the traditional high school delinquent demeanor. Moh wears bull horns and carries a bat, while Kumako wears bear ears with bear claw gloves.
The story takes place in an alternative version of Japan’s capital called Crypto Tokyo, where cryptocurrency is a part of daily life, and crypto-obsessed gangs wreak havoc.
The story will be fleshed out through releases of collectible digital and physical artwork, which will be sold as NFTs. The artwork will introduce us to new characters and new locations in the story.
The digital art tokens will be launched in multiple batches over two months. In addition, two unique tokens will come with a particular aluminum version of the artwork, which will be signed and numbered by Maekawa himself.
Although the plans aren’t entirely clear yet, this is just the first phase of the project. It might be a little difficult to understand for now, but this indeed is our future!
